1) Max & Katie.. They were solid from start of leg to finish as they were flawless. Great improvement as they were on brink on being eliminated and as result of winning leg they each got brand new cars.

2)Joey & Meghan.. Another surprise as they plugged along and had solid finish. Loved Joey's expression on face dive as Meghan went firstthat was crazy insane challange.

3)Caroline & Jennifer these babes are hot. They did well to stick with Bates & Anthony as I think they will hook up after race. Good team they are

4) Bates & Anthony.. We knew all along they would hit slump and it happened this leg with letters breaking they did train challange and did Judy enough to avoid elimination. Also bate losing bag was not good but he didn't passport so it was no biggie. Hope they voice back next week. 

5) Mona  & Beth  good place for them hope they are double I turned next week and are gone.



Next week Scotland as well as double U turn

Welp, Joey and Meghan were eliminated this week this team was just a bit too sensitive and cared more about the sights than actually winning 1 million bucks, which is cool but I think you need a little bit of tenacity if you are going to win the race (which is fine with me) but I would have rather seen Beth and Mona eliminated personally. But it's alright----4 fairly strong teams going into the season finale. 

1) Max and Katie...I am not a real fan of this team other than Katie's looks. They are arrogant and fairly douchey over all. But I do recognize that they are a strong team and will be tough heading into the last leg of the race, I think they end up getting 2nd.

2) Bates and Anthony...Overall this is the best team in the race and have been since day 1 in my opinion. These guys are down to earth, average Joe's (now that they are retired hockey players lol). But I really like this team and hope they win and think they will get 1st.

3) Caroline and Jennifer...these girls are very likable and easy on the eyes. However, I don't think they have been THAT strong of a team honestly. They have relied a little too much on Bates and Anthony in the past. With that being said, Bates and Anthony better not help them too much this leg of the race or it may just come around and bite them in the behind! I like this team but feel as if they are a tad weaker than the 2 teams mentioned above. I think they finish 3rd.

4) Mona and Beth. This team is just annoying in my opinion. I don't hate them but just not that fun and I'd rather not see them win. Nor do I think they are that strong of a team. I think they get 4th place.

Looking forward to next week, been a decent season thus far. Not great but not bad.

Totally agree!
1) Max & Katie this team has won back to back legs and look goof after shaky start in race. At least they double u turned Mona & Beth. Liked Scottish poet while they were making food. 
2) Bates & Anthony Bounced back after near elimination last leg they rocked in Barrow challange and looked to take stage but fell just short in winning leg. I hope this team wins it all! They are great down to earth guys.
3) Caroline & Jennifer another solid finish as they are kinda riding Bates & Anthony's coat tails. It looked like they were going to finish last last but they were solid in challanges.
4)Mona & Beth Nuff said.
And last team eliminated was...


Joey & Meghan. Agree where they cared about traveling then winning million dollers although was hoping they wouldve finished ahead of Mona and Beth. Still they finished better then I thought.
Next week season finale see you then.

Season finale in game! 

Jennifer and Caroline just got eliminated but they really shouldn't have. Mona and Beth took FOREVER to finish the Titanic challenge and definitely thought they were screwed. But Caroline and Jennifer sucked big time early on in the Bog swim.

Come on Bates and Anthony!!!!!

Bates and Anthony for the win! 

They pretty much controlled the last leg...so they won a pretty uneventful last leg of the race. 

Definitely not the greatest season or not nearly as exciting as last season but it was good.

Thanks for the thread Moose, it was a pleasure  see ya next season!

There should be an asterisk next to Bates and Anthony. Their win should be unofficial. Shame on the Amazing Race for picking them to compete against the other competitors.

Lol, it wasn't overwhelming but I think the only real competition for them was Max and Katie. Many of those teams are useless but of course CBS has to cater to every single demographic out there. For example, Chuck and Wynona were doomed from the start but I'm sure everyone in Southeastern USA was cheering for them. And Joey and Meghan, they were a little too sensitive  but of course that whole community was cheering them on.

Basically, CBS/The Amazing Race is genius about the way they select their teams. They are always super diverse and cater to literally almost every major demographic in the USA. 

Oh well, glad Bates and Anthony got the win

Bates and Anthony had a huge physical and athletic advantage over the other teams. They were former pro athletes for crying out loud. haha

That's very true, however, on the last challenge where they had to identify the countries they visited on a globe/put them in order that wouldn't of mattered at all!

The right team won! They were near the top all season. The challanges were tricky but all teams had to deal with it. Also they did have to come from behind in this last leg. I think we are all in agreement that thankfully the roller moms didn't win. That would've sucked. I enjoyed this season as I do every season, I think it's best show on right now, better then survivor and big brother as those are good shows but aim for the younger teeny bopper crowd. Let's see how they do and amazing race. Great season looking forward to amazing race 23, I enjoyed doing weekly recaps of show see you all next season.

Glad Bates and Anthony won. Did not want Katie and Max to win Katie bugged me with the remarks about her husband (she is good looking though so Max puts up with it).

The Amazing Race is still amazing after all these seasons.

See you all next time.

Moose, hope you will be around with write-ups.

Go Team Bingo! I have Rowan and Shane in an office pool.

Not too sad to see Father and Daughter go. The father Hoskote seems like he is controlling. He did however take the mistake at the end pretty well finishing the Roadblock.

Yes the amazing race 23 is back for another season and I'm back for another season of recaps. Upset the amazing race didn't win 10th Emmy losing to the voice. All 11 teams began in wild west before going to chile. Team Oklahoma getting lost in LA on way to LAX wasn't good start to race. The roadblock of parachuting was awesome as teams got to chile in different way. And detour of doing fishing challange was tricky for teams also. Here is where teams finished.

1)Tim & Marie.. Exes who don't get along at all. Not sure about this team. Tim seems to be ok but Marie not sure as she stole cab. They only took stage 1 because next team forgot to read directions to get to final stage.

2)Nicole & Travis.. This team is ok. It helped that Nicole knows Spanish and Travis did really well in challanges, they are driven, smart and determined. Despite mistake on not reading directions to pit stop this team I think wil go far. My early favorite to win.

3)Rowen & Shane.. Theater performers,Drag show Queens of Bingo. Very surprised they finished this high. These guys seem to be ok. I think they will be fun addition to race if they avoid elimination.

4) Chester & Ephraim.. Team NFL another team I like. Not sure if another pro team can win like last year, but they are pleasant and respectful team. Strength challanges they should do well in.

5) Nicky & Kim...Baseball wives. Cool team not sure they will go far if they have problems like they did in paragliding challanges. Hot babes. But we'll see how far they can last.

6)Ally & Ashley LA Kings Ice Crew Girls. Another hot team! They have boyfriends and I don't think they will last if they are more interested in next team I will mention.

7)Leo & Jamal..Cousins and self proclaimed Afghanimals, I think this could be obnoxious team with noises they make. Also Jamal screwed up doing boat fishing challange instead of Leo. These guys are ok though. But they need to focus on race not on LA King Girls.

8)Jason & Amy..self satisfied daters Another down to earth team. As Jason did well in rowing challange. Too early to tell how they will do.

9)Tim & Danny...best friends and oil field operators from Oklahoma. Nice honest guys from small town Oklahoma. They work 70-90 hours a week yikes. Tim has sick wife and Danny has two daughters. I like this team but if they got lost on way to LAX not sure how they can go far.

10) Brandon & Adam.. Long haired and bearded best friends for 22 years, who live in the woods of northern California and would get naked at the drop of a hat. I think this team will bounce back next week. They are weird guys but think they finish strong next week. And team that was eliminated was...

11) Hoskote & Naina...Father/Daughter. Hoskote is controlling father who wants to marry daughter off in forced marriage. I thought this team would stay alive but they fell behind in later stages and couldn't recover. I think they should make 1st stage non elimination to get teams acclimated to race but that's just me. Next week crack up and strip down. Great to be back for another awesome season of best show on tv see you next week.

what's up guys 250th postgreat episode again as teams remained in Chile teams head to ship to get clue to say Spanish saying to captain to get next and do detour. Brining or mining, I'd have done brining as teams had to endure long bike ride then it was on to 24 hour bus ride for road block to to shoe shining. Here is where teams finished.
